standing tall and proud

here's my Hemi, standing tall and proud. Dodge puts big tires on all their full sized trucks that being said it's hard to tell a 4X4 from a 2wd so i lifted my truck to give it the 4x4 stance. just a 3" body lift, i know it's not a "real" lift kit but because my truck sees very little off road use i chose the BL over a suspension lift.

next mods...
1.trans go shift kit
2.headers
3.a custom grille/brush guard (mabey custom front and rear bumpers....mabey)
4.bigger tires...when these wear out

enough babble, on to the pics

thanks, i made that when i got good and tired of the tiny wheels on my old creeper getting hung up on a pebble of floor dry. this one has 4" casters and will roll over a 12ga extension cord and with a little speed roll over a 3/8" air hose. made it so it has 3/4" ground clearance so i can roll my carcass under low cars.

Looks good,..

Now you just need to put a 2" leveling spacer in the front as well,.. unless you wish it to still be raked somewhat up front.

don't know how much bigger i will go, i don't want to kill my mileage by getting crazy.

i would be interested in experiences you guys have had with bigger tires vs mileage on the Hemis. how big did you go and how bad did it get LOL.
